I think this already happens, except twice a year rather than once - 
every release. When a new Fedora version is released, there are parties 
around the world for Fedora users and developers to gather and 
celebrate. Not all in one place, but the distributed nature seems to be 
more consistent with how Fedora, and free/open source software in 
general, work. And I'm sure that if you happened to be halfway around 
the world and dropped in on a release party, people would be thrilled.

For more on release parties, see the info in the wiki, including lists 
of past and upcoming release parties:
